$5 Million Settlement for Failure to Diagnose Meningitis
After experiencing respiratory problems, a 10-week-old boy was taken by his mother to a local emergency room. The physicians failed to diagnose his illness and improperly discharged him. After his release, the baby experienced seizures which caused severe, permanent brain damage. When the boy was 4 years of age, Eisenberg, Rothweiler, Winkler, Eisenberg & Jeck, P.C., filed a claim on his behalf. After just one week of trial, the firm recovered a large settlement, which is to be placed into trust for the child’s future care.
